1973 ke- in a country where we do not keep records - Thank God for Nigeria hosting Afcon in 1980- otherwise the case of Odegbami CCC Muda Felix and co would have been like above - see picture and only able to name 1 or 2.

anyone that names more than 6 will be doing so merely from memory and guess work.

kid born 10 years will name the England 1966 winning team by heart- first 11

I could p[ossibly name more than half of them but the photo that I see is only from left to Okala and that is it. Can you reduce the size so that we can see most of them?

I am going to refrain because I have seen this photo and the names on WhatsApp, otherwise it's the 3 Rangers greats that I recognize (Okala, Ezeani and Achebe).

Shin guard was not compulsory until around 89. At least in Nigerian, it was in 1990 I started using shin guards because it became compulsory. Even the FISU games I attended in 87 I played without shin guards..... It was the advent of aids that made it compulsory

As for boots, shattap dia.... They have been using boots since the 60s
